In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her first husband and father of her children, Cecil Kestner; her second husband, Abram Boardwine; son, Alvin Kestner; three brothers, Ira, Talmadge “Shorty,” and William “Dub” Caudell.

The family will receive friends Tuesday, December 26, 2023, from 5:00 P.M. until 7:00 P.M. at Frost Funeral Home in Abingdon.  A funeral service will follow at 7:00 P.M. in the Frost Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Silas Damron, Reverend Jim Odum, and Brother Dwayne Riddle officiating.   A graveside service will be held at 11:00 A.M.
